Our relationship with Sunny Start began over 5 years ago. We chose Sunny Start Preschool because it was the cleanest and happiest “daycare” we could find. At the time, my daughter was 6 months old. I can tell you now that Sunny Start is so much more than that… For one, IT IS NOT A DAYCARE, but a true preschool. This fall when my daughter started Kindergarten she was beyond prepared and continues to exceed grade level benchmarks. My daughter’s teacher recently mentioned that the 2 students in her class from Sunny Start were the most prepared of all of her students. With our youngest now in her third year at Sunny Start, I would recommend this school in a heartbeat. The dedication of the teachers and administration is obvious. The school is maintained beautifully and is very current on technology. Through the use of technology, Sunny Start provides a secure learning environment with cameras in the classroom and playground, and by employing a biometric system to sign students in and out of school. Additionally, each classroom is equipped with tablets and music which enhances the learning experience. Sunny Start also uses technology for communication with parents through the use of the application Tadpoles, which allows us the opportunity to see photographs of my daughter throughout her day at school. I could go on for days about why I love Sunny Start and the amazing things they do, but instead, I’ll end this by saying, I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my kids!

My daughter graduated from the school this year and started Kindergarten. Going into her fourth week of her big transition, her teachers informed me that she had an outstanding base from her preschool and is reading first grade level! A Sunny Start Preschool prepared my little girl in a spectacular way! The staff is very professional and family oriented not to mention superb state of the art facility. Needless to say I highly recommend the school!

Amazing school! Teachers are great! My daughter has been there since she was one and she LOVES her school. She has learned so much and she feels like all her teachers there are part of our extended family. I do, too. I have seen my baby girl blossom into the wonderful, smart 4 year old she is today. She will be starting VPK there this year & I am super excited to see what this year will bring! Thank you Jennifer for running such an amazing place! For always watching out for our kids and for your dedication to their education & health!!!

My son attended A Sunny Start Preschool since he was six months old. I cannot express in enough words how happy I am with his achievements because of his preschool. All the teachers are so wonderful and loving to the children. On most days, he didn’t want to leave in the afternoons. Not only is the atmosphere homey and warm, the teacher’s #1 priority is education. I saw a huge change in him when he entered their VPK program. He became independent and had such a thirst for learning. Thanks to his teacher and director, he is one of the top students in his kindergarten class. When it was time to enroll my newborn baby into daycare, I never hesitated to turn to A Sunny Start. I leave her every day with a happy heart, knowing that she is in the best hands. They truly love my children and for that I can’t thank them enough.

At first, I chose this place over the other daycare centers because of its special baby room. They have a separate “extra clean” area, and lots of games for the babies. My son has been here for over 1 year and I am sure he will be there until PK-4. Everybody is so caring… It is for real, they do care for my child! My son is a recent VPK graduate, and I am excited to say that our experience was exceptional. Last Summer I searched for the perfect VPK facility to enroll my child I and conducted a handful of interviews in my local area. My initial expectations were to find a facility that was clean, safe & most importantly had a friendly staff; this school definitely stood out above the rest. I feel absolutely blessed that my son was able to start his academic achievements at this school. I noticed his new interest in learning immediately after he started attending, his bond with his teacher was as if he had known her his whole life. This was my son’s first school setting and when he started he had never held a pencil, within a couple weeks he knew how to write his name, let alone he learned the whole alphabet. Throughout the year, he even learned how to read and use a computer. The teachers provided a very loving, nurturing and safe environment for them while developing their social skills and confidence and preparing them for Kindergarten. Jenny the director was an outstanding role-model and great supporter for my son and me. He learned so much while attending A Sunny Start Preschool! He is really going to miss his teachers and the wonderful friends that he made there. Thank you so much!!!

A Sunny Start Preschool has been a lifesaver for my family. My son began his daycare experience at a different school, and it was heartbreaking to see how upset he would arrive at school every day. He would cry as soon as he arrived at the door. Everything changed when we arrived at A Sunny Start Preschool. For the first time, he is eager and excited to enter the class in the morning. I am so thankful to the teachers and staff who have helped him develop confidence and a love for school!

A Sunny Start Preschool has been one of the greatest decisions my husband and I have made. From the moment I walked in, I felt it was the right place to put my daughter in. The communication is outstanding. Emails are sent daily about upcoming events, reminder, etc. If you email the director, Jennifer, or assistant director, Tatiana, you can be sure you will get a prompt response. You even get daily reports on what your child ate, activities for the week, and you even get pictures! My daughter has been there since she was one and is now three. She has grown socially, emotionally, and academically. Jennifer, Tatiana, and the teachers make a wonderful team and come up with fun learning activities and curriculum for the kids. Most importantly, my daughter loves going to school. So thank you A Sunny Start Preschool for your dedication and support!

My 3 year old daughter Hazel has attended A Sunny Start Preschool since the summer and she loves it. At first she had to adjust but the teachers were always so welcoming and made her feel comfortable. The teachers and staff always look happy to be working there. I’m a teacher as well so I expect a lot from a school and this school has surpassed my expectations. I’m at peace when I drop her off. One of the best things is the app that the school uses called Tadpoles. With Tadpoles the school sends me daily reports, pictures, videos, and so much more. Nothing is better than receiving a picture or video in the middle of my work day. Great school!

When my daughter was 6 months old, I went to check out A Sunny Start Pre-School. I immediately knew this was the place for her when I was greeted by the infant teacher with a big smile. All the children in the school looked happy and all the classrooms were EXCEPTIONALLY clean and cared for. Four years later, my little girl is about to start VPK at this amazing school. I am heartbroken because she only has one year left here. In this bilingual environment, my daughter learned to sing the ABCs by the time she was 14 months old. She learned her colors and shapes before she was 2. Around 22 months, the teachers were fully invested in helping me get her potty-trained. And around 3 years old, my little girl was learning to write the letters of her name. This school definitely deserves the title “preschool” versus daycare. The teachers and director, Jennifer, make it each moment the students are with them valuable. Students not only excel in academic endeavors, but they are taught respect, good manners, and how to solve conflicts between each other. I credit Sunny Start for fostering a love for learning in my daughter. I feel privileged to have her surrounded by outstanding educators. I really cannot give this school enough praise. The teachers have become near and dear to my heart.

Not by choice, I was forced to put my 6 month old in a preschool. Without a doubt, without a second guess, and with my eyes shut…I happily and lovingly left my baby in the hands of A Sunny Start Preschool (I even forgot to call to check up on him the first day). The staff members become part of your family. They treat your child as if they were their own. The owner, Jennifer, is like their 2nd mommy. My now, almost 2 year old, has great manners and is talking up a storm!! Loves going to school and says hello and goodbye to ALL staff members with a hug and a kiss!! Kids have a 6th sense. They know when something is good for them. And my kid has given me two thumbs up since day one!!!

I would like to extend my gratitude to A Sunny Start Preschool for the amazing impact they have had on my children’s lives. Both of my sons attended A Sunny Start Preschool from the time they were very young. My oldest son is a proud graduate who received top marks in Kindergarten thanks to the academic preparation he received in the preschool. The teachers provide a great environment where my sons feel loved and welcome each time they walk through the door. The administration continues to make positive changes that propel the school into the future and make the school standout above the rest. Thank you to A Sunny Start Preschool for everything you have done for my family!

I recommended A Sunny Start Preschool to all whom have children from birth to 6 & more if they would take older. I am a proud mother of very bright and advanced children thanks to the tutelage of Teacher Carmen, Milly, Angela, & Sofia. As you can see I have had an experience with every level of teacher in the school. I have a Kindergarten boy which I am proud to say is in K- 1 in his school. For those who do not know what K-1, this is where Kindergarten students are also being taught with 1st graders. My four year old is still at A Sunny Start Preschool and she is extremely bright. The curriculum in her class is incredibly advanced and even though I hate homework she is always excited and eager to do it. She can identify words and knows her numbers this also has to do with the fact she loves her school. All this and she has not yet started VPK because of her birthday, but she will be starting come this school year. Thank you Jennifer, Carmen, Milly, Angela, Sofia & Tatiana you guys are the best.

I’m happy to have found this place. The attention is the best. The teachers are the best. My children learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly say to you that every child that goes through this program comes out a winner!

I would recommend this school to any parent searching for a preschool with an excellent curriculum. My daughter is 7 years old and attended this preschool. After graduating from Pre K she tested advanced at her current Charter elementary school. Her teachers were impressed at her knowledge and how advanced her reading was. This school helped her read and went over all the subjects she needed to prepare her for Elementary. She recently tested for gifted this year by MDCPS. This was all due to the foundation she received here. The teachers are amazing and caring. Two of my friends that had their children here also tested for gifted. I am so happy with the school, the curriculum, the teachers, and the staff and now my son currently attends A Sunny Start Preschool. I would not go anywhere else.

My grandchildren have all attended A Sunny Start Preschool and this was the only preschool they attended. Three of the four are already in Elementary School and thanks to the foundation that they developed in this school, they are students with high grades. Thank you very much to all the teachers who are always attentive and patient with children. The quality of academics that children receive at this school is evident in their success.

I love love love this preschool/daycare! Very caring and loving staff and my oldest son loves going every day! I am so excited my twins also started a few months ago, they are so happy here as well. The teachers here are amazing! They genuinely care about the students and the woman in charge of curriculum for the school is always looking for new and great ways to teach the kids. I have 3 children at this school and could not be happier.
